In this city of Abilene which is known for our churches, faith-affiliated universities, and Christian non-profits, there is no shortage of worthy charitable causes to support. One area church, Wylie Christian Church (WCC), is aiming at filling the needs of children and adults who are in desperate need of help this holiday season.

Some are homeless, others are either the "working poor". But that's not all. Upon hearing Pastor Roysden speak of those who have been battered and abused needing help too, I tear up and cry every time.

These Big Country children need things like socks, clothes, and food. Wylie Christian Church has the biggest heart because they don't judge anyone - they just jump in there and start doing God's will. I know this because I've seen it firsthand.

WCC needs donations of several items. First off, nonperishable food for a holiday meal will be boxed up and delivered locally. Socks, collected year-round, are taken to the Noah Project for families recovering from domestic violence, and to the Salvation Army for the homeless. 

Flashlights no matter the size are also needed. These are given to the homeless who wander through Abilene's streets in the darkness. WCC’s goal is to "demonstrate God’s love by helping people who are facing hardships, crisis or disaster."

Some of the children being helped are foster youth who are aging out of foster care, and now find themselves homeless and alone. So, any donations and/or contributions you can make are most graciously appreciated.

If you can donate items, cash, and/or volunteer your time, please contact Pastor Roysden or Pastor Roni at Wylie Christian Church - "the little church on the hill that does!" - at Antilley Lane and Buffalo Gap Road.
